Nuggets star Nikola Jokic hits floater in lane for game-winner to beat Heat

Nikola Jokic

Denver Nuggets star Nikola Jokic hit a tough floater against the Miami Heat with only 2.4 seconds left on the clock to give his team a 101-99 lead, and ultimately, the game:

The shot came off a beautiful bounce pass from Jamal Murray. Jokic gathered and went straight into Heat center Bam Adebayo while flipping up the game-winning shot.

To go along with the clutch shot, Jokic also recorded a triple-double in the game. He scored a game-highย 29 points along with 11 rebounds and 10 assists, as well as a steal.

The Nugget’s Twitter accountย used the opportunity to push Jokic’s All-Star bid, and at last count, he stood in 7th place for frontcourt players out of the West.

Denver’s victory pushed the Nuggets to 27-12, owners of the best record in the Western Conference. The Heats loss dropped them to 19-20.

The Nuggets next game will come against the Los Angeles Clippers on Thursday afternoon, which will be a preview of a potential playoff matchup. Jokic will look to build off a terrific game and lead his team to victory once again.
